Just saw 2218 on a 228F not long ago, so it's definitely still in service. Not sure why it was removed fom the fleet lists.

More than likely another scenario of a vehicle awaiting parts, hence not being seen for a few months, and hence listed as withdrawn.

Reminds me of 2558. It's odd that it wasn't even 10 years old in 2014, and yet they have to resort to what would be equivalent to visiting a U Pull it in Texas or somewhere via boat to get the parts.

Just wondering, has there been any more retirements lately? I haven't seen 1954 or anything newer getting around, yet...

I guess it's inevitable and been coming with 422 being the oldest SL202 still running... so grateful to have got a final ride last week

428 and 438 seem to have done their last run, from what I've heard. 441 will probably be the next to go.

1604 has been withdrawn from service according to Fleet Lists. Is this correct? I've only been back home 2 weeks after spending 4 weeks away overseas.

I haven't seen it in service in a while, so that is likely. Being one of the six SL202s subjected to AEC 'turbo' modifications, it wasn't in a good condition.

1604 was sighted at Sims Metal last week, quite possible that it has been scrapped already.
